Julia Fisher talks to Salim Zeidan – This week’s edition of the Olive Tree comes from Bethlehem, in the West Bank. My guest is Salim Zeidan, director of the House of Hope – a home for blind people and those with special needs. Salim retired from teaching to take on this role. He was born in Beit Jalla, a suburb of Bethlehem. As we sat in his office in the late afternoon, while the children were playing outside his window, he shared his story.
Our aim is to build bridges… To build bridges of understanding and support, in a spirit of reconciliation, between believers (both Jewish and Arab) in the Holy Land (Israel and the Palestinian Areas) and Christians worldwide.
